“After living with my uncomfortable dentures for years, Dr. Albik explained the benefits of implant supported dentures. They have made my life 100% better! I don’t worry about my teeth falling out or discomfort when I eat. THANK YOU Dr. Albik!”

What Are Implant Dentures?
An implant denture is a form of prosthetic that replaces an entire row of teeth by using implants for support.
Regular dentures are different from implant dentures because they rely on your jawbone and gums for support rather than an implant. This means that traditional dentures are not likely stay in place as well.
There are two types of implant dentures; overdentures and fixed dentures.
- Overdentures are similar to regular dentures as they just “snap-in” to implants and are removable by the patient.
- Fixed dentures are directly screwed onto the implants and cannot be removed by the patient. These are also known as “permanent dentures,” “fixed bridges,” or “all-on-four.”

Implant Dentures Treatment Process
1. Consultation & Imprints
Come in for a free consultation to decide best treatment plan customized to you! You will be able to discuss any questions or concerns with Dr. Albik.
2. Extractions & Implant Placement
Any teeth left intact will be removed and your implants will be placed into the jawbone. Following this, molds will be taken of the alignment of your bite.
3. Verifying & Try-In
Once the molds have been made into models, Dr. Albik will place the models to ensure that they fit properly and comfortably. This is also when you decide what type of prosthesis you would like.
4. Final Placement & Follow-up
Once the final dentures are made and polished, they are ready to be inserted. The dentures are mounted to your implants and adjustments are made for the perfect fit!
A follow up appointment should be made for the next day to make sure the dentures are still fitting correctly. For long-term follow ups, it is generally recommended to return for a check-up at least once a year, but we recommend once every six months.
